Your Walkthroughs and Techniques

Post descriptive walkthroughs of watches you have stripped down and serviced and/or repaired, parts you have made or techniques you wish to share.

This is an interesting section where we post our challenges and how we have over-come them. You can also post walkthroughs and share your techniques.


SECTION RULES

This section is strictly for those posting real step-by-step walkthroughs of actual repair or servicing techniques relating to watch repair and/or horology in general. The idea is that we help each other by describing or sharing our repair techniques, or telling a story of how we have progressed.
If you are not posting step-by-step walkthroughs, such as - you would just like to showcase a completed repair job, then please choose a more appropriate sub-forum for your content. If your post is not deemed to be a legitimate walkthrough then a moderator will move your post to the appropriate section without notice. Thank you for your co-operation.

    • Interesting. On the opposite side of variety I have some with no batteries! Looks like you need to lift the plate on top of it to remove it.

    • He had it in a drawer since the early 70s unused. It still kept time but I had it serviced. It's not actually my favourite type of watch but I can appreciate it for what it is!
    • Cleaning machine users feel the need to use proprietary, expensive solutions, for this, that, then for rinse 1 or rinse 2. In reality the process should be varied depending on what you are cleaning, for example if you have brass parts that you want to make shine you should use some ammonia based product, but if you don't, that wold be totally useless. Then about rinsing, what it is after all? Nothing but getting rid of any dirt freed and left in suspension from the previous bath, for that distilled or demineralized water is perfect, since you cannot use a water jet with a car after soap sponging. Just look the benzine jar against the  light, if there particles floating then discard and rinse again until nothing can be seen anymore. And then IPA is great final rinse because it absorbs water so to make drying faster. However in the end, cleaning is just like lubrication, you will always meet someone that thinks and does different from  you, just like the good old book above says. Today I spoke to a guy which said that dressing drivers on a stone is wrong and one should use a file because the stone wears out, I guess he never handled an Arkansas stone or an €1.50 aluminum oxide.
